As a developer who is not familiar with the finance symbols and service names and a newbie in retuers elektron, I wonder where I can get a list of all the symbols and their related service name,
Currently with the examples tested, I was able to retrieve currency info for EUR, USD from the he_dd service, while I was unable to predict how to get the currency info for (saudi riyal).
Or how I can get the market info ...
can you point me where I can gain this initial knowledge ..
Have you come across our RIC search tool?
For example, if I type in 'Saudi Riyal' and then click FX&Money I can see that SAR= for US Dollar/Saudi Arabian Riyal FX Spot Rate - amongst many others.
The same example code you may have used to consume EUR=, should be able to consume realtime market data for other asset classes e.g. VOD.L for Vodafone - assuming you are permissioned for the data at your site.
If you require more guided help regards identifying the correct data / content , please contact our Data helpdesk via the MyAccount page.
The service name for our consolidated Elektron data will be site specific and all the Elektron realtime data is often available under the single service name e.g. ELEKTRON_DD or IDN_RDF etc...Please speak to your Market Data team or Reuters Account Manager.
